Orion Nebula & Jupiter

Hello Everybody,

I had another chance to play with the glass and mirrors to see if I would see any "magic" . I took a couple of pictures and I thought I'd share them.
Orion Nebula is a 5 minute exposure for the outer nebulosity and the core is a 1 & a 2 minute exposure, taken with a Canon 40D. Stacked them and adjusted the levels in photoshop. I though this image looked OK.
Jupiter on the other hand is still puzzling me... I thought I had my SCT collimated, was a bit out and it was corrected prior to imaging. Captured a minute of frames through a Red, Green & Blue filter, and for luminance I used a IR Cut filter then a IR Pass on my DMK41AU. These Jupiter images are an improvement over my last two attempts so I'll just keep having to tinker and practice.
The Moon was just a last minute shot before packing up.

I love the colour on the Orion Nebula, it looks a little over smoothed though?
Having said that though, I'll be stoked if I ever manage an image like that...
